Falmouth’s first abandoned turbine house  

Credit:  Falmouth Patch | December 13, 2012 | falmouth.patch.com ~~

Falmouth has its first abandoned turbine house. Mine. After making every attempt to survive in all too close proximity to the WEBB/NOTUS/TELEDYNE wind power facility our conclusion is clear. We cannot mitigate, compromise, take it for the team or fight the inevitable forever and maintain good health and quality of life. We have been forced take action and it hurts, big time.

We have cashed in all our savings and moved to Cataumet. The new house is one of the cheapest sold this year. We worked all summer like first time fixer upper homeowners just to make it liveable. Its nothing near the dream house we designed, built and adored 10 years ago. However, compared to living with the effects of the turbine it is heaven.

I sleep again most of the time and am able to think clearly and function again. Some of the time my husband sleeps too, but neither of us are the same. It is pretty hard to think about our future now. All our life’s financial worth is tied up in the turbine house. Retirement is only a few years away and we wonʼt have much to live on. That is unless justice still matters, which seems out of reach right now.

There is no experience that compares to first hand experience. You can tell a soldier all about war in a classroom but until they are in the line of fire it is all academic.

Our home was made my war zone. We choose peace. Peace has a high price and is worth it. Those in the line of fire know the truth, the rest is just mental gymnastics and spin. We have some very active and cruel spin doctors on the job in Falmouth.

These health and life changers happen exactly the same way all over the world where these multi-megawatt turbines go up too close to homes. Real science is proving the medical issues and is beginning to be recognized. Just like second hand smoke there will be decades of denial and excuses with an eventual decision in favor of the victims. Of this I have no doubt. After all I am one of the first group of victims. Just bother to believe we aren’t making this up for heavens sake. Why would we?

Itʼs not looking good, but I pray for Falmouth and this turbine dilemma. This is a pivotal moral decision. It looks like the town fathers (and a certain town mother for sure) are determined to keep the war going until they get a win. All wars cost too much and there are no true winners.

Town meeting cannot handle it either. Falmouth needs a town wide vote and a chance to educate each individual voter on the turbine dilemma. This problem is bigger than anyone realizes and I can guarantee it will never go away as long as those things are still running.

The privately owned WEBB/NOTUS/TELEDYNE turbine, identical to the other 2, runs unabated, 24/7 full time and without investigation or much mention in the news. It gets just as many complaints. It has driven me out of my home and others out of their jobs in the tech park. Unfortunately, I know why they skate through untouched. Money talks loudest in Falmouth.

The selectmen and board of health members have been instructed not to talk to the turbine victims. So they just dance, give lip service, dodge us and run from the truth.

Not one of them has a clue first hand what we are experiencing or the kind of torture they continue to inflict.

Sue Hobart, Cataumet
